Last year I was introduced to Portland Dining Month with a wonderful three course dinner at St. Jack, then at the Clinton Street location. The quality and service was exactly what you would expect of St. Jack but the price tag was only $29.
Portland Dining Month is always a great event and, with the change to March, it is nearly here. For a fixed price of $29, you get a three-course meal from dozens of Portland restaurants, many of them the high end restaurants you are dying to try.
Here are details from the 2014 Portland Dining Month press release.
WHAT: Mark the calendar. Portland Dining Month is back for the fifth year, but this year it’s slated for March and the list of participating restaurants is already growing. A collaboration among the Downtown Marketing Initiative, Travel Portland and restaurant partners, Portland Dining Month is a month-long dining promotion where Portland restaurants offer three-course dinner menus – including an appetizer, entrée and dessert – for $29 per person, served every day the restaurant is open. This is a unique and affordable opportunity for both locals and visitors to try new Portland restaurants or go back to their favorites.
For the last four years Portland Dining Month was held in June, but due to additional out-of-market advertising opportunities funded by the Tourism Improvement District and input from restaurants, the highly anticipated promotion has been moved to March.
WHEN: The entire month of March, 7 days a week, during dinner hours
WHERE: Dozens of top Portland restaurants.
COST: $29 for a three-course meal
